  1. The first band in which I played performed, along with other bands, at the then Sherwood Rooms. All bands used BEL amps. My own amp. was a Vox. Regards, Will2017
  2. When I first moved to AustraliaI I also had a straight six Holden with a three speed column change. Fortunately, I soon changed that for a much better vehicle.
  3. Hi DJ360, thank you for your reply. I remember most of the bands and knew some of their members. It was a great era for different genres of music both live and recorded. Regards, Will2017
  4. Hi DJ360, Thank you for your comment. The 360 was a good club for live entertainment. Tiny Davis was the singer in Tiny Davis Souls A Go-Go. From recollection,prior to members leaving,the band had lead and bass guitars, drums,keyboard, two saxes,trumpet and female backing singers. Tiny was asked to join Litter after the original singer,Win Jones, left. Tiny (Vic Johnson) was the singer in the Newtones whose bass player later played in the Reg Guest Trio.
  5. DJ 360, I was the bass player in Litter-played at the 360 Club. You may have the DJ. Regards, Will2017
